by toyota. an important message for toyota owners there has been a lot of people wondering about toyota recalls, get the facts and information at toyota.com. >>> all right. let's go out to the ronster. right now. >> reporter: good morning, don and marty. what a beautiful morning in baltimore. that is for sure. we are in front of one of the most beautiful buildings in the city, the fell's point recreation pier, it's almost 100 years old. of course changes are coming. interesting changes. a $45 million project that will bring a hotel here to one of baltimore's most popular neighborhoods. >> the fell's point recreation pier is one of baltimore's signature buildings. built in 1914, it once served as a community center. there were dances and basketball games. it's just been sold for $2 million. to local developer j joseph clark and h and s properties which built harbor east. a 132 room hotel is on the way. >> there will be a new hotel here on two levels inside, and the interior will be open to the sky. >> reporter: tourists stop here every day. the building doubled as a police station for th
to the fine that nhtsa is seeking against toyota -- $16.40 million? >> if the evidence points to the fact that toyota was withholding information from regulators and the public it is appropriate. that fine level is relatively new. it is a new authority from the tread act that was passed in response to the ford at firestone issue -- the ford firestone issue. before that, the fine was down in the hundreds of thousands. we were the first ones to cross that million dollar barrel. ford was slow to report a windshield wiper defect that was a safety threat. going to $16 million, to the full extent of the law, sends a message to the industry that they are serious. >> i read one critics saying that "toyota embarrassed the agency and that is where this is coming from." what do you think? >> the agency's mission oriented. it does not have all of the tools it might need. it is usually outgunned by the global industry. this was critic for a national industry. we transitioned to a global industry. it is trying to maintain the rules. what you do is you find people who have gone over the rules and you ho

. >> shepard: nothing you can do about that in just the past 24 hours, toyota announced another recall, its second in a week. it also agreed to pay the largest fine ever for a car company for fail to tell regulators about problems with sticking gas pedals. that's, of course, on top of the 8 million vehicles toyota has already recalled. it may look like a public relations disaster. but, as it turns out, sales are up. drivers are still buying to its. phil keating is live in our florida newsroom tonight. what's the deal here? >> well, shep, one big reason that toyota's u.s. sales in march jumped 41% over march '09 was historic buyer incentives worth about $2,300 per vehicle. yet, every toyota customer we spoke with, one after another, said good toyota news or bad toyota news it just doesn't matter. they just love the brand. >> jeff, call on 700. >> you could call leann mcgrapth toyota's quintessential customer. >> it's nice. >> she says she has owned six or seven to its so far. her two sons own to its. and now she is shopping for another one. >> i just feel they are safe. they are proven time

." >> tom: toyota marches back, while ford and general motors share in the gains. here's a rundown of march's car and truck sales. toyota played comeback kid-- sales rose 41% on hefty incentives after the recalls. aggressive incentives also boosted sales at ford motor, up 40%. and at g.m., march sales were up 21%. the numbers are exaggerated by easy comparisons to last year, when the recession was in full swing. but chrysler is still struggling to gain traction-- sales there fell 8% last month. >> susie: auto dealers are still counting on a blockbuster spring selling season. consumers are back in showrooms, and it looks like they're ready to buy again. but as diane eastabrook reports, the economy is still the wild card. >> reporter: they're back. consumers flocked to dealer lots last month, thanks to warmer temperatures, a string of incentives, and optimism about the u.s. economy. tom bavone is seeing a complete change in customer attitude at his ford dealership. >> they talk about their jobs are doing well. they feel more secure in their jobs and they seem happier, you know. it's better th
in the district in the 3600 block of alabama avenue southeast. the driver of a toyota vehicle you see there was killed after being struck by a speeding van. a child who was riding in that car is said to be in critical condition. witnesses said the van was traveling dangerously fast. the driver of the van was freed from the collision that sparked a small fire. there is no word on if any charges will be filed. >>> as a murder mystery of a d.c. principal deepens, the neighbors say the lack of details leave them worried. it likely happened after 11:30 wednesday night when friends last spoke to him and 7:00 a.m. thursday when he failed to show up for school. his home and a stolen suv are two key pieces of evidence. >> many times there is receipts or other papers left behind for -- by people who steal vehicles or who are in them for some period of time. we want to look at that information and see if it will direct us to who is responsible, who was in that car. >> we don't believe that this was a random act. while we can't fully rule out that it might be random, we believe that there was som
of the year which is sort of a halo to get some of the toyota magic with the prius that gm's been lacking. >> speaking of toyota, how much of their problems are now rebounding and helping? gwen: that's a good point. if toyota's in trouble, then somebody's got to benefit. >> there was an amazing ap poll this week that said americans actually thought that american cars were of higher quality than asian cars, which obviously americans haven't thought for decades. >> that's a revolution. >> right. if you think about toyota and all of the problems they've had from the sudden acceleration, recall of 9 million vehicles worldwide, two more recalls just in the last week and the decision to pay the largest-ever fine in auto safety history of $60 million for delaying a recall by more than four months, it does give the domestic companies an opportunity to maybe convince toyota owners to come into the showroom. >> is it short lived, though if toyota gets its act together, could that then mean that the game is either slow or they -- could they erode? >> here's the interesting thing, toyota has really u
a decade since they evaluated any vehicle this poorly. yet another black eye for toyota. >> that's right. >> it, of course, is the parent company. >> this is a rare and very direct warning for buyers and owners of the lexus gx 460. about 5,000 cars have been sold. consumer reports says do not buy this car. they found significant and severe rollover risk during turns. they do all of these controlled testings, four different drivers found the same problem. they got another vehicle, found the same problem on this one. they say it is not isolated. it is a problem with the electronic stability control system. it manages the brakes and the steering together. so if you're going up an off ramp and there is some sort of an obstacle, you turn quickly, there could be a real rollover risk for people with this car. if you have this car, they say be very careful on any on ramps or off ramps because they're very concerned about the stability of the vehicle in those circumstances. take it to your toyota dealer and demand a fix. if you don't own this car and thinking about it, consumer reports in a very
